Daniele Spanò


Urge Oggi by Daniele Spanò is a reflection on game’s nature, declined within the world of computers and artificial intelligence. Two computers play rock, paper, scissors.

The project shows the viewer a software that plays against itself, raising a series of questions that lead to reflect on the relationship between human and machine and how they can approach the same area, in this case that of the game. In the machine’s game dynamics, the properly human components such as, for example, strategic considerations are missing. The viewer is led to wonder if fun can be part of the machine’s skills or if the game’s result is just “an intelligent and boring multimedia installation”.

Daniele Spanò, after set designing studies, begins to work as director and visual artist. His video-installations, commissioned by institutions and individuals, bring him to the most beautiful squares in Italy. Among the most important interventions: Giardino dei sogni, realized with Luca Brinchi for the Giorgione’s exhibition at Palazzo Venezia, in Rome; the multimedia show to present the Gucci autumn/winter 16/17 collection in collaboration with Luca Brinchi; Linea di Fuga, multimedia installation annexed to the MAP collection (Museo Agro Pontino – Pontinia, 2016); Pneuma, site specific installation exhibited at the 56th edition of Festival dei Due Mondi (Spoleto, 2016); Atto Primo, at Church of the Artists (Piazza del Popolo, Rome, 2013); Rifrazioni permanenti (2011) in Piazza Colonna, Rome, promoted by Presidenza del Consiglio, Ministero del Turismo and MiBAC. In February 2011 he was selected by the famous director and artist Takeshi Kitano, to represent Rome’s artistic ferment. Since 2009 he has worked as a set designer with Piazza Vittorio Orchestra. As a visual artist he exhibited in museums such as Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria, Centrale Montemartini in Rome, MAP of Pontinia. He also works for individuals and non-profit associations. From 2012 to 2015 he was artistic consultant for Romaeuropa Foundation.
